Joyful Swimming

It’s not a race, it’s an Escorted Open Water Swim!

Looking to slash your triathlon swim time, or to establish a personal best? Or perhaps you simply want to experience the joy of open water swimming in one of the most beautiful parts of the world.

Say YES! to Life Swims is the Northwest’s premiere source of open water swim adventures. Since 2011, we’ve been building a world in which all swimmers experience accomplishment, exhilaration, and camaraderie.

“I would never have done open water swimming without your Excursions, Guila! You got me comfortable in a deep dark lake.
Priceless, thank you!”

— Stella, 2014
